Court finds Evans, two others guilty of conspiracy, kidnapping


An Ikeja High Court has found kidnap kingpin, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike (alias Evans), guilty of kidnap of Mr Donatius Dunu, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Maydon Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

In a three-hour judgment on Friday, Justice Hakeem Oshodi also convicted two of Evans’s co-defendants, Uche Amadi and Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu.

Oshodi found the three persons guilty of conspiracy and kidnapping.

The judge, however, discharged and acquitted the other co-defendants, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, an ex-soldier; and Victor Aduba, also an ex-soldier.

He held that there was no evidence linking them to the crimes.

As the time of this report, the case has been stood down for an hour for the sentencing of the convicts.
